1.Writing and recording careers.
Many Live Music Management party bands,singers and musicians have ambitions to release music commercially. Many of them write their own music and hope to gain publishing or record deals. Some of them have had significant success in this area and Live Music Management acts have secured major deals with labels and publishing houses.
Session players are musicians who play on records , film and TV music or live dates when they are a payed a session fee (i.e a one off fee for the appearance or recording session.)

Of course many of our acts have played on the Jools Holland show including as recently as November 2012 when acoustic act Brook Supple played in the Sinead O Connor band on the Jools Holland show.
A great many Live Music Management DJs (and some bands) produce music for the dance music scene offering remixes to major recording artists or original pieces for the dance music scene or for TV and advertising.
Live Music Management support a vibrant and talented team of creatives many of whom make a percentage of their income from the mainstream music industry in the ways outlined above but also rely on the planning and booking of live events by Live Music Management for a portion of their income.
